The Stockholm Syndrome

Photographed By Ellinor Forje

It's interesting that we sometimes call ourselves fashion slaves and fashion victims: Yet, we faithfully (painstakingly) continue to obey and serve this master. Really, I need to ponder what creates my own madness. The conclusion; forget the fashion shows. I should be seated in an insane asylum right next to Marquis de Sade!

Also, just to spare you the question: Yes they're mine - I own a pair of handcuffs. They're for my "fashion installations". And notice, how I put those last two words within quotation marks.

    I'm guessing those are fashion show invitations in the backdrop? I think I can almost read out Ivan Grundahl. And your're a slave to it---very clever post!

  18. The Taj, mayhap, to you may seem, a mark of love supreme
    You may hold this beauteous vale in great esteem;
    Yet, my love, meet me hence at some other place!
    How odd for the poor folk to frequent royal resorts;
    ‘Tis strange that the amorous souls should tread the regal paths
    Trodden once by mighty kings and their proud consorts.
    Behind the facade of love my dear, you had better seen,
    The marks of imperial might that herein lie screen’d
    You who take delight in tombs of kings deceased,
    Should have seen the hutments dark where you and I did wean.
    Countless men in this world must have loved and gone,
    Who would say their loves weren’t truthful or strong?
    But in the name of their loves, no memorial is raised
    For they too, like you and me, belonged to the common throng.

    ...thanks.
